The biotech village was implemented for the first time during The International Liver CongressTM 2016, last year. Its aim is to give biotech companies the opportunity to take part in the congress and to gain maximum visibility through a broad mix of communication channels including; the exhibition, workshops, press conference, marketing activities and acknowledgements. ILC offers biotech companies the opportunity to meet high-level executives, influential decision makers and other biotech companies.
Last year in Barcelona, Spain, a partnership between Sanyal biotechnology and OWL Metabolomics was initiated. The biotech village is the perfect platform to begin partnerships with other biotechs.
Dear ILC Committee,
It was a great pleasure to attend the International Liver Conference 2016 in Barcelona Spain this past April and be a part of the Biotech Village. As a small start-up company with limited personnel and resources it would have been impossible for us to attend as a regular exhibitor. However, thanks to the amazing efforts of the ILC staff and the new Biotech village we were able to make our commercial debut at the largest liver conference in the world. It was because of this conference and the great placement of the Biotech Village that we were able to get over 40 leads and jump start our business. The staff and organizers of the event were knowledgeable, courteous, and went the extra mile to ensure that our experience was world class. In sum, the ILC-2016 Biotech Village was an amazing success and as a company we are looking forward to attending next year in Amsterdam.
